Verztec has a long-standing commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR). Whether it is taking time off to spend our day with the less privileged or donating some of our proceeds to worthy purposes, our CSR initiatives span across different causes and across our offices.

Here’s a look at some of the causes we were involved in and are passionate about.

 

2016


University-YMCA (Uni-Y) SMU ISP Chiang Mai, Chiang Mai

Verztec is happy to be a partner sponsor for Singapore Management University’s Overseas Community Service Programme trip to Chiang Mai last December.

Their project- University-YMCA (Uni-Y) SMU ISP Chiang Mai was organised in collaboration with the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA). Held from 4-19 December 2016, their project objectives were to develop and empower youths to make impactful contributions to the local and international communities. Accordingly, they worked with Ban Kad Wittayakom School, a local institution in Chiang Mai, to (i) upgrade the school’s existing facilities and (ii) improve the literacy standards of the students.
